EVENT OVERVIEW

Australia's population is ageing at an accelerated pace as the baby boomers move into the over 65 age group.
By 2056, there are expected to be 6.4 million Australians over the age of 65 and a further 1.7 million over the age of 85. It is also expected that by 2050 3.5 million Australian's will be accessing aged care services each year, with 80 per cent of those delivered in the community setting. We are now at a tipping point to ensure that the system is ready to support this increasing number of older Australians.
In 2012 the Federal Government introduced Living Longer Living Better a ten year aged care reform package. This event will reflect on the first twelve months of implementing these reforms and discuss whether they go far enough to build a capable aged care system of the future. This event will also explore aged care facilities versus staying at home and how to finance these alternative options.
The Victorian Minister for Health and Minister for Ageing, David Davis, will provide a keynote lunch address on the future of aged care in Victoria.
